The Lyrics

Ode to the Weekend Warrior.
It’s the time of the season
when the grass grows high.
Early spring, such a fertile reason
Best to apply
With calloused hands
To nourish all the young roots
Lavished lands
To mow my spacious lawn
It’s the time of the season for mowing.

Where’s your gas? (where’s your gas?)
Who’s your trimmer? (who’s your trimmer?)
String fed.
Does it trim high weeds?
Do you use (do you use)
Briggs and Stratton (Briggs and Stratton)
The best
The best engine that’s made for lawns.
Mow it over slowly
Lines real straight
Then go around the oak tree
It’s the time of the season for mowing.

Sharpened blade (sharpened blade)
Check the oil (check the oil)
Dipstick
Change your spark plug too.
Does it start (does it start)
On the first pull (on the first pull)
Or sputter like a gaseous fart?
I mow my grass now weekly
And I trim
The sidewalk and the curb
It’s the time of the season for mowing.

A nice treatment of a very quirky OS.

I've heard of smokin' some grass, but this is ridiculous. Kind of the point, actually.
